Introduction: Currently offering virtual services as well, at a discounted rate! Grant Swift is an acclaimed vocalist and guitarist, specializing in covers of classic R&B, Rock, Soul, Folk, Pop and Jazz, uniquely arranged for acoustic guitar and voice. His repertoire contains everything from The Beatles to Queen, Frank Sinatra to Ed Sheeran. Some loop pedal magic helps to fill out the sound for medium to large venues. He has a wide network of excellent accompanists when the event calls for a bigger band. In 2014, The Huffington Post called his former musical project one of "5 Must-See Indie Summer Concerts in NYC." Please take a look at my repertoire list at: grantswiftmusic.com/page/private-events to see if I will be a good fit for your event! Special arrangements outside my repertoire will carry an additional cost.

Grant presented a broad musical playlist which made choosing songs easy. He was willing to learn our wedding song which blew us away, quite the surprise. excellent communication up to the time of the event made the experience stress free. Precaution wise we were safe, kept the indoors warm, clean and ventilated, we maintained approximately 15 feet distance, and Grant was completely accommodating and safe himself. The musical experience was so down to earth and nearly indescribably great. I can't overstate what a good person, and a professional musician Grant is.

I found Grant on thumbtack while looking for a ‘minstrel’ to play some of our songs while proposing. I had put a ton of planning into the idea of how I wanted to propose, I wanted to bring my fiancée to where we had our first kiss and have the same music playing, “stand by me”. Grant was quick to reply and very professional throughout. He actually made me more calm and successful on the big day. Grqnt has a genuine talent and love for his work, this was self evident. I’ve worked in the music industry and could tell right away that Grant was the right fit. He also has great falsetto! Well done Grant! She said yes, thank you!

Grant made our engagement truly special and memorable. He was a great sport and flexible with our plans. The music was fantastic - I highly recommend him to any gig.

Grant is absolutely fantastic. I would highly highly recommend him for any event. I recently hired him to perform during my surprise proposal which required Grant to be positioned in a remote location before we arrived. He was more than willing to communicate with me as often as I needed during the planning phase of the proposal and absolutely nailed the performance exactly as we discussed. I find that it is a rare occurrence these days for someone to meet the expectations that the customer envisions, but Grant is everything that he promises. Great voice, great guy, great attitude, there is no need to look anywhere else!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My standard pricing as a soloist/one-man band for most events is $200/1st hour, $100/each additional hour. Transportation up to 1 hour from NYC, setup, and breakdown are all included free of charge. Pricing for weddings and other formal events where extra consultation and prep is needed have a base rate of $250/hour. Special song arrangements and additional musicians will be billed accordingly.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Call me! I love talking on the phone with potential clients. I find that's the best and easiest way to talk through all the various things you might be envisioning for your event. No event is too large or too small for a phone call.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been singing professionally around the United States and abroad since I was 6 years old. I have a BA in Music with a focus on Theory/Composition from Fordham University. I have been playing the guitar for about 20 years, and have played various other instruments in that time as well.
